Burning Man Photo-Essay

MOVEMENT: . . . . . . . . . • Flying •

One day at dusk I saw this guy flying around in a parachute with a rear-propeller. I was able to catch up to him and zoom alongside him at the same speed as he flew, shooting photographs while riding my bike one-handed. Then I gave him a big thumbs up and rode home for dinner.

Other fliers at burningman include people who purchase tickets to fly in and/or parachute in!
